Kiyadon Central Park - revisit

Well, this time our sushi craze was kicks in again while we were wandering around in Central Park, a newly opened mall in Jakarta.. The mall is really nice, different from other malls we ever visited in Jakarta.. The mall has a great outdoor park and also designed in a unique way. That nite we decide to had a dinner in Kiyadon.. Seems like we visit Kiyadon quite often yaa, we've tried in different branch in FX and Grand Indonesia.. But, this Central Park branch caught my attention for sure..

I really like this place, it was decorated differently from others usual Japanese restaurant..

The entrance.. Greeted by two big elephants hehe..

Checking out the decor of the restaurant, we were stunned by their interior concept.. The restaurant is sooo spacious, maybe it's the biggest Kiyadon branched in Jakarta with a very different concept from other branches.. The place was especially designed in natural style like a tropical forest to create a serene atmosphere to give the patrons a relaxing and enjoyable ambiance..

You also can choose to seat in gazebos.. Decorated with white drapes these gazebos offer a very peaceful spot for you to relax and had a great companion..

Being seated near to sushi bar is the most fun part here, we can directly choose varieties of sushi in the unique sushi conveyor..

Instead of using a machine sushi conveyor, they use a streaming water and little boats to carry a sushi on it..

Back to the food.. We're here for sushi..

To started with, we picked the small DIG Rolls (35K), kani/crab stick rolled in sushi rice and topped with torched salmon, floss, and tobiko.. It's fresh, delicious, and satisfying..

And this Chicken Katsu Sushi (25K). I didn't know the exact name of it, but it's a sushi rice topped with fried chicken kastu.. Simple yet tasty..

Next, Tuna Salad Inari Maki (45K), sushi rolls stuffed with tuna salad and covered with inari/sweet tofu skin.. Mmm the sweet of tofu skin and tasty tuna really melt into your mouth..

A Fried Spicy Salmon (25K), spicy salmon maki fried with tempura batter and drizzled with its special sauce.. I Like its crunchy batter..

Lastly, something special and recommended by the waitress there, Spider Cheese Roll (45K), huge sushi balls filled with soft shell crab, melted cheese, cucumber, and capsicum/paprika fried in tempura batter, drizzled with teriyaki sauce and mayonnaise.. Strawberry on sushi? soo nice.. Tasted soo cheesy, a good choice for cheese lover..

And we ended with this free compliment dessert, fresh fruits cut..

My brother said that they have opened their latest branch in Emporium Pluit, and I haven't check it out.. Is that latest branch's interior more sophisticated than this one? We should find out later hehe.. Well, we really had a good time here.. We enjoyed the food and also the ambiance.. Give it a chance, and you maybe surprised as I was..
